Samsung i780 review: Mouse included

 

The Samsung "i" line of smartphones have taken quite a lot of different shapes and seen OS implementations ranging from Symbian to Windows Standard and Pro. There are, however, five birds of a feather that do stand out with...

Unique dual mode touchpad navigation ; Built-in GPS with A-GPS support ; Large 2.55" 320x320 pixels TFT touchscreen display ; Good preloaded content ; Innovative home screen plug-in ; Wi-Fi, Bluetooth with A2DP ; HSDPA, 3.6 Mbps ; Fast Marvell PXA3xx...

Unpopular display resolution creates poor compatibility with third-party software ; Camera has no autofocus, nor LED flash ; The num-pad is quite crammed

Although we are mainly comparing it to the Samsung i600, there are another two Samsung QWERTY smartphones: the AT&T branded Samsung i607 BlackJack and Samsung i617 BlackJack II. Although meant for the American market, they both have quad-band support...

Review: Samsung SGH-i780

 

Samsung's SGH-i780 is unusual for a few reasons. It is a Windows Mobile 6 Professional device with a 320x320 pixel touchscreen that sports the BlackBerry style form factor, and it uses an optical mouse for navigation. Jin tests it out in this review.

when in camera mode use the volume side buttons to switch between the front and back cameras. I too got too frustrated with it. There should have been an option in the software.

Samsung i780 Review- Your Office on the Road

 

Another great device turned up in the post for us to take a look at and it's the SAMSUNG SGH i780 Windows Mobile Professional device

Expert review by:

Samsung i780

 

A fully fledged smartphone running Windows Mobile 6, Samsung's i780 features a redesigned home screen that provides access to frequently used features...

Slim design, full QWERTY keyboard, optical joystick, 3.6Mbps HSDPA-capable, GPS with navigation software

Odd-sized display, keypad may be a tad small for some, proprietary headphone/charging jack

The i780 improves the usability of an otherwise regular Windows Mobile 6 device by offering a redesigned home screen and an optical joystick.

Samsung SGH-i780

 

Samsung's SGH-i780 mounts a challenge to the classic BlackBerry design and Jon finds out if it's a successful one.

The keyboard has also been improved. Though the buttons seem smaller than on the i600, they're actually easier to type on, but it has a long way to go to match the BlackBerry 8800's keyboard, which is the benchmark for devices of this type.

Samsung SGH-i780 BizBee

 

Samsung gives its SGH-i780 handset a boost with new software and branding, but are the results any good?

. That said, this is a business handset, so it's meant to be more functional than flash.
